French People

Yaxlich is a bit confused. He has just seen that French protesters spent their New Years Eve protesting against the year 2007. As soon as midnight struck, they began planning their campaign to stop 2008 happening.

Now Yaxlich doesn't pretend to be an educated man. He left school when he was 16 so didn't study at university or anything like that but, as far as he can see, there are some things which, no matter how much you wish they won't happen, will happen.

Acne. Taxes. Old age. Death. Day. Night. A new year starting at the end of the old one.

These things seem to be fairly non-negotiable. He really can't see the point in spending time holding a protest.

Still, what does Yaxlich know? He doesn't smell of garlic, wear a stripy tee shirt, own a beret or have a sister wife.

Ha ha ha - all French protests are pointless....but necessary to preserve the French way of life.

No need to understand it. It just is.

But no stripey T-shirt? Now that is not good. Pfft! ;)


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (11:30 pm) : 

He used to own one but it seems to have got lost somewhere along the way. He is off to have a look in the January Sales on Wednesday after his trip to the vegetable soup place. Perhaps he can find one in the bargain buckets.

Ah, good to know that the Frogs are still barking mad :) I must say I'm much rather hear about them than listen to what the EU Ref people must be going on about today ;)


Blogger Sablonneuse said ... (8:37 am) : 

It has to be said that the French anti-New Year protests were tongue-in-cheek and probably a laugh at themselves considering all the protests that have happened this year - not to mention all the other years.
Call it the French sense of humour.
Dear Yaxlich, (re: your comment to previous post,) this post certainly doesn't offend me and I'm sure most French people wouldn't be upset about it either.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (2:18 pm) : 

Iggy - surely it's mentally unbalanced dogs that are barking mad.

Sablonneuse - Yaxlich is pleased that he didn't offend the French with this post.

::Yaxlich makes mental note to try harder next time::


Anonymous Ignorminious said ... (6:13 pm) : 

Well, I toyed with croaking mad, but it didn't seem to have the right ring to it, so I settled for barking and hoped no one would notice :)


Blogger Jim McKee said ... (6:14 pm) : 

Smell of garlic: Probably better that you don't unless you plan on a run-in with a vampire.

Wear a stripy tee shirt: Depends on your weight... they say stripes are slimming...

Own a beret: Not even a raspberry beret?

Have a sister wife: I can't speak for France or England, but that sounds illegal here in the U.S.

Good for the French! Greenmantle's brother went, and as usual, it was an excuse to drink Champagne, good wine, and eat saussiçon.

Thanks for the new year wishes Yaxlich, and for reading the awful crap... Toodle pip!

Hey, can you think of a more original way to spend those long hours pre 2007?

I was there! (you can see part of our banner on the M6 website - unfortunately, although the paint itself held up fine under the rain, the banner itself was made of carboard... )

Amusingly, M. le Député-Maire Jean-Marc Ayrault (PS) popped by to make vague statements about how he hoped that we'd have fun...we did.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (1:40 pm) : 

Iggy - Yaxlich thinks you should try to use the term croaking mad from now on and see if it catches on.

Jim - Illegal but common place in parts of Europe.

Greenmantle - Will Greenmantles brother be attending the 'Non to 2008' protest?

Macdo - Welcome. Are you Greenmantles brother?


Anonymous Ignorminious said ... (2:46 pm) : 

I think I'd have to be croaking mad to try that, but perhaps I'll give it a go :)
